Linda K Price, CPA: Owner and Accountant
I moved to Columbus in 1994 and have made this my permanent home. I have 3 grown children and one in college. My husband, Jim, also owns a Caliber Inspection Services, with which he stays very busy.

Victoria Osten: Staff Accountant
My name is Victoria Osten and I am a full-time staff accountant. I moved to Columbus in 2012 with my husband Cody. I am originally from Nebraska City – the home of Arbor Day! I attended the University of Nebraska – Omaha and received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting, Banking and Finance, so you could say that I like numbers a lot. I have 17 years of payroll and accounting practice already, so I am able to jump right in when someone needs help. When I’m not here at the office, you can find me playing taxi driver to our son Kyler. He is involved in 4-H, Robotics, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Wrestling, and he is active on the show pig circuit each summer. When I get a few moments of “mom time” I like to read, go on outdoor adventures, and play sand volleyball. I will be working towards receiving my CPA license soon, so I can better serve your needs.
